Kybella: The nonsurgical solution to redefining your chin

The fear of having a double chin is extremely common in both men and women across the globe. This fear becomes or already is a reality for many of us. Thankfully, there is now a safe and effective solution for this common issue. Rediscover your jaw-line with the revolutionary procedure, Kybella.

Kybella is the nonsurgical solution designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat. It provides maximum results and requires minimal commitment as sessions average between 20 and 30 minutes. Although it varies with each patient, 2-6  sessions scheduled a month apart are suggested for optimum results.

Kybella is the first injectable substance that the FDA has approved to treat under the chin fat. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into “under the skin” fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The preference for fat cells leaves surrounding tissue largely unaffected. It destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jaw more contoured.

Plastic Surgery Trends in 2015

A recent article from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AASFPRS) predicted what they believe will be the biggest trends in plastic surgery in 2015.  Check out the list of what will be hot in 2015. Call Lift to get a free consultation with Dr. Kassabian on these procedures or any others offered at Lift!

The predicted top 3 Plastic Surgery Procedures for 2015:

1.  Rhioplasties, neck contouring and eyelid lifts are some of the most popular surgeries right now.  Experts believe that the demand for these surgeries has gone up because of the “selfie” phenomenon.  More people are seeing themselves on social media and, as a result, want to look their best.

Rhinoplasties will be amongst the most popular procedures in 2015.  It's easy to see why! Take a look at what an incredible transformation this young woman under went!

2.  Injectables and fillers will also still be amongst the most popular procedures this coming year because patients are still drawn to the quick fix with no down time that only fillers can provide.

3.  One of the biggest predicted plastic surgery trends in 2015 will be the blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift.  This surgery is amongst the most popular because the eyelid area is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging.  This surgery will take years off one’s face and there are minimal risks and side effects.

A blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, instantly turns back the hands of time and gives a refreshed and awake look back to the face!

Is Botox the New Answer to Depression?

 

Image

It seems as though in the near future Botox may be treating more than just fine lines and wrinkles.

According to an interesting new study recently published by the Journal of Psychiatric Research, doctors found that “Botox may help relieve depressive symptoms both as a stand-alone and an adjunctive treatment.” Participants in the study were injected with Botox in the muscles between the eyebrows. When compared to the placebo group, researchers found that the group that received the Botox treatment had up to a 47% decrease in their depressive symptoms after six weeks.
